It is the Face of Everyman who sets the standards of decorum at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  So, who among us would censure the venerable sage, when, at last, he lost patience with a particularly ill mannered fledgling?  Did he mean to shrug and send the little avian into the water?  The sage was quick to express his regrets; but, to those gawking onlookers close at hand it sounded more like an oath.
